Sagittarius Horoscope: January 2014
Going to extremes is a significant theme late this month and how you handle strong emotions may determine whether this is a good idea or not. The key to this story is the opposition of your philosophical ruling planet Jupiter and tiny but potent Pluto on January 31. A tendency to go overboard with your opinions could heat up to a boiling point and negatively affect your finances. Expressing your beliefs is important, of course, but tempering the intensity with which you speak or write about them is recommended.
On the plus side, this transformative transit, which will repeat on April 20, will either deepen your commitment to the truths you hold dear or show you where it's time to let go and find new causes to fight for. Career plans may also be in the balance as a greater investment of energy will be required to keep them on track.
The New Moon on January 1 lands in in your 2nd House of Income, which should stimulate fresh thinking about money and might even lead you to another source of income. This Sun-Moon conjunction in Capricorn is, however, a highly volatile event due to tense connections with four other planets. You could be restless and rebellious but can also be inspired enough to consider seeking a new job or pursuing a totally different career.
Investing in tools and training makes sense as long as you do some serious research before spending the money. Innovative ideas triggered with mental Mercury's shift into your 3rd House of Information on January 11 grow even more significant when the Sun enters Aquarius and this chatty part of your chart on January.
Keep in Mind this Month
Leaving an unsatisfying job makes sense as long as you are sufficiently motivated to develop new skills in a new one. However, leaping without looking (and thinking) might not land you in a better place.
